How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*Prior to its termination on 6/16/2000, the Committee accomplished its purpose through meetings and public hearings. The Committee discussed and analyzed international competition policy issues in order to deliver policy recommendations to the Attorney General and Assistant Attorney General for Antitrust. For example, the Committee held two sets of public hearings in the fall of 1998 and the spring of 1999. The hearings on November 2-4, 1998, involved 48 expert participants, including senior competition officials from around the world, lawyers, investment bankers, economists and academics from the United States, Australia, Brazil, Canada, the European Union, France, Germany, Japan, Mexico, Spain, and Venezuela. A second set of hearings were conducted on April 22, 1999 and May 17, 1999, which provided an opportunity to hear from a number of business and trade associations who reported on the findings of special task forces that each had formed to consider issues under consideration by the Committee. The Committee also undertook a number of other more targeted outreach efforts. For example, in the area of mergers, the Committee initiated a survey of some 18 mergers that were reviewed by antitrust authorities in more than one jurisdiction and sent letters soliciting input from lawyers and business executives associated with those transactions.
How is membership balanced?*The Committee's membership was composed of prominent individuals with experience in law, economics, business, industrial relations, finance, and academia.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*The Committee generally met two times a year. The meetings allowed the Committee to consider international competition policy issues that aided in the development of recommendations to be provided to the Attorney General and the Assistant Attorney General for Antitrust.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The Committee represented a unique opportunity for a group of distinguished individuals with diverse experience and expertise to meet and develop a consensus over the direction of international competition policy. In addressing these challenges, the Committee has considered the role for competition policy in the global economy broadly and with a view to improving approaches not only within the United States but also around the world. Its Report considers problems that transcend nations, problems within individual nations, and problems between particular systems. It is not possible to predict how the global economy will evolve, but the Report starts from the premise that the United States should try to provide an environment conducive to the further expansion of international commerce, tolerant of the diversity of nations with respect to their own evolving law, and hospitable to the enhancement of world welfare.
